Pet Product Header Cards

Printed hanging header cards affixed to merchandise bags are one of the most cost-effective ways to showcase your pet products. A well-designed header card not only catches the eye, but also provides great product visibility. Header cards are custom designed to fit your unique pet packaging needs and can be printed in almost any size. Once printed, they are cut to size and scored for ease of folding. In additional to being very functional, a hanging header card provides great visibility when your product will be hanging on a display. Best of all, header cards are affordably priced and can be produced quickly. Low cost does not mean low value when it comes to a printed header card. It may be the right solution for your retail packaging needs and your budget.

Pet Product Hang Tags

A hang tag is just what you’d think. It’s simply a tag that hangs from a pet product. A hang tag works well on durable pet products, such as leashes, harnesses, pet clothing, plush toys, chew toys, tug toys, pet shampoo and more. A custom printed hang tag can be die cut to any shape and size. They can be as extravagant or simple as you choose. A foil stamped hang tag on a luxury pet item can be very impressive in a simplistic way. An elegant hang tag can really showcase a high-end product. Depending on the design and special effects, a hang tag can be an extremely cost effective method of packaging for pet products.

Printed Pet Product Backer Cards

Like a hang tag, a printed backer card works well with items that are durable. It’s important to remember that the pet product will be exposed when considering the use of a backer card for packaging. Think the big chew bone zip tied to a hanging backer card, the dog collar on a backer card or the pet grooming brush attached to a backer card that you may have seen in a pet store. Backer cards are perfect when you want a consumer to be able to touch your product, such as a pet toy that squeaks.

Printed Insert Cards

Insert cards are an integral part of many pet product packages. They’re ideal for things such as clear cartons, clamshells or even plastic sleeves. They refer to the printed card that sits inside a clamshell or other type package that identifies the product and provides information of interest to the consumer. Insert cards can be die cut to fit the specific size and shape of a clear carton. They work well for so many different types of products, and just like header cards, can be very cost effective.

Four tips for selecting the right type of printed pet product packaging

  1. First and foremost, you want your pet product packaging to fit your brand. Your packaging should look consistent across all of your products. This is important even if you’ve chosen different packaging for different items. Be sure your brand remains consistent. Remember, your packaging is an in-store ad for your product and your brand!
  2. Second, know your audience. Is it a youthful demographic that wants to see more sustainable looking packaging, a target that is looking for the best deal, or a demographic that wants to see more luxury? Understanding your audience will enable you to focus on the right packaging solution from the start.
  3. Third, be familiar with your competitors’ packaging. If your product is hanging in a crowded pet store aisle filled with similar products, you’ll want to be sure to stand out for all of the right reasons. You want your items purchased first!
  4. Finally, know your budget. Price needs to be a consideration when creating packaging. You don’t want a luxury, foil stamped header card for a very low cost item. On the other hand, you don’t want a one-color, cheap looking hang tag for an expensive, more select pet item. The packaging should fit your budget, as well as the item you are selling. Another important consideration, the cost of the packaging should not dramatically impact the retail cost of the item.

Print for specialty food packaging

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018

You already know your specialty food is delicious. The goal is to get that message across to consumers with equally enticing specialty food  packaging. Will your product be one of many in a crowded retail space or fighting for attention on an online marketplace? According to many consumer behavior studies, packaging is a critical factor when making purchase decisions. In fact, Engage Shopper Consultants reported that a whopping 76% of purchase decisions are made in store. Although a consumer may leave home with a definite purchase in mind, they may not have any loyalty to particular product. Therefore, an attractive specialty food packaging design that fits your product and your brand can definitely influence a decision. This goes for both in-store and online purchases. To increase sales, you need to capitalize on impulse and tap into that split second emotional response.

Don’t underestimate the influence of specialty food packaging on sales

Decisions, decisions. It’s time to make it easier for your target consumers. Although packaging is often the final phase in bringing a specialty food product to market, it can often be an important step in the ensuring sales and influencing consumer decision-making. Some experts believe that product packaging can be considered a selling point all on its own. Both visual and functional aspects of your packaging are important to consumers. Color, type, graphics, paper stock, the use of foil print and the shape of the die cutting can all enhance the appeal of your product. Is your packaging adequately representing the quality of your brand? We encourage you not to overlook this important factor in your overall marketing plan.

Gourmet food product packaging

First of all, although we were taught at a young age not to judge a book by it’s cover, many of us still do. Printed product packaging is part of the overall user experience. Specialty food packaging and beverage packaging can convey many things to consumers. This can include everything from perceived value to brand ideals. Think about what attributes you’d like to convey with your packaging. Perhaps it’s the luxurious taste of specialty truffle oil. Maybe it’s the environmental friendly brand of organic jam or the down home feel of your family’s secret recipe pasta sauce. Whatever the goal, printed specialty food retail packaging can help you achieve it.

Printed sleeves and bellybands

Wrap your specialty food product in the love it deserves with a custom printed and die cut sleeve or bellyband. The open design of a sleeve allows your product to have maximum visibility. A band that slides over a box of gourmet candies or a cookie tin can really grab attention. The same is true for a printed sleeve that fits nicely over your specialty coffee bag or a gourmet cheese product. Whatever the product, Corcoran Printing can suggest the right die cut shape and size. Bellybands and sleeves are often a cost effective retail packaging print solution to enhance the look of ordinary specialty food boxes.

Specialty food hang tag printing and header cards

A printed and die cut hang tag is ideal for beverage bottles and food products that have a neck or a handle. They also fit nicely on jam and mason jars, as well as specialty salad dressing containers. Furthermore, they are durable and easy to attach. A header card is perfect to attach to the top of a bag holding your food product. Header cards are ideal for bags of nuts, dry soup mix, small bags of dried spices and much more. The possibilities are nearly limitless for gourmet food or beverage hang tags and header cards. Both can be printed on an array of paper stocks. Furthermore, they can be jazzed up with metallic foil stamping or embossing and they can also be die cut into almost any shape and size.
